The bottom fermented, dark Gösser Stiftsbräu is brewed according to old, inherited traditions. With a smoky, roasted nose and a thick and creamy taste on the palate, Stiftsbräu is a sophisticated delight for lovers of a slightly sweet, dark beer. The overall impression that Stiftsbräu creates is one of great harmony and well roundedness. 11.8°

33cl bottle. Nice dark colour with a white head. Nice palate but there’s a herbal flavor in the aftertaste that I really didn’t like.

Deep, dark brown/red with a medium khaki head. Fruity yeast aromas with some roasty toasty. Clean, light roasted flavors. Very light body with a dry finish. Light and drinkable with a rich roasted finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It does loook like Coca Cola. Dark, translucent cherry wood, with a fragile white head. Smells sweet, roasted malts...no: toasted malts. Sweet bakery smell of freshly-baked cross buns. The taste has that typical Dunkelness (not Darkness, neither Dunkelheit), with sweet malty flavours, biscuits, Lebkuchen, allspice with cinnamon, cloves and cardamon, all well-packed together and rounded to difuse the complexity. Palate is a bit ashy-chalky, sticking to the teeth. The finish is long and subtle, but when you turn around, your tongue is covered in this sticky tannin-type of film. Strange. Not a bad beer, but perhaps not something to get too excited about.

SheffieldSteel (117) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - OCT 23, 2012
Aroma of toast and yeast. Pours thick off-white head.Colour is hazy dark brown, with an amber hue. Taste is thick and sweet with some toffee, plum and toffee apple. Watery. Light carbonation. Finish long and bitter. Decent ABV on this would make it a good choice for a session beer when looking for something a bit different.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and vanilla-kissed coffee malts.. came across very sweet. The flavor found very sweet chocolate, vanilla, and caramel malt with very light, toasty bitterness around.. sweet, fairly tasty finish. Light-bodied with higher carbonation.. very sweet, but not overly so for the style.. aiight.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was a glass of Coke with a frothy white head and a slight haze. Oddly enough there is an aroma of cola nut along with cocoa in the aroma, some dusty grain silo and dark malt. The flavour is very much a manifestation of the aroma with some pecan nuttiness. This is the enduring flavour in the finish which is helped by persistent fine bubbles. A tasty drop.

Poured with a generous head. Big dark colour which looks impressive. However does hold up in the tasting. Little thin on the palate.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Draft at Libreria bar in Tirana Dark brown scattered lace Smells good and bready. The palate is sugary and the malts are underdeveloped and it soon becomes too sweet and cloying; the body can’t keep up with the sugars.
